Directing the clouds

This sign along a rural road outside of Elgin Illinois seems to be suggesting the direction and speed for a bank of clouds in advance of an approaching storm last Monday. The changing face of the sky is can be fascinating to watch and a challenge to follow. In a fleeting moment, a photo like that in my previous post presents itself. I only had time to shoot two frames before it disappeared.

Paying attention to life's clouds and sun that pass by us on a daily basis is also a challenge; it is so easy to miss the beauty that streams by us every day. And sometimes, like the sign above, we want to control that flow and slow it down for our enjoyment.

I definitly like the concept, but there is a bit of haloing around the sign that is throwing me off.

The picture before this one is amazing. :)
